UPDATE: Police releases identity of homicide victim


POLICE PRESS RELEASE –
 The Criminal Investigations Department is investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of 51-year-old Dhallah Biscette also known as Dhallah Henry of Bois Patat, Morne Du Don, Castries.

About 2:42 a.m. on Wednesday, August 20, 2014, Officers attached to the Criminal Investigations Department, received a report from medical personnel of Victoria Hospital of a stabbing.

Information received suggests that a male was brought into the Accident and Emergency Unit of the hospital, with what appears to be stab wounds to the upper body.

The male who was later identified as Dhallah Biscette/Henry was pronounced dead on arrival. Biscette was seen by a passerby lying on the ground adjacent to the Ferry Terminal at Faux A Chaud, Castries.

A post mortem examination is scheduled for a later date.

The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force is seeking the assistance of the public with the investigation of this matter. If anyone has information that can assist the police, they should contact the Criminal Investigations Department at telephone numbers 456 3770 or 456 3817.

This has been the 22nd homicide for 2014.

EARLIER REPORT: Reports are that the body of a man was discovered with several stab wounds on the roadside.

Sources say he sustained a stab wound in the chest area and on his arm.

An eyewitness told St. Lucia News Online that he drove passed a “motionless” man on the road around midnight.

The eyewitness said the man may have been dead for sometime but because he was homeless and slept on the roadside, persons may not have found anything suspicious.

When asked why he did not stop to investigate, the eyewitness said he did not think it was safe due to the recent violence in the area.

  1. Did jury duty with this man some years ago. Life is so unpredictable and people make it worse by having no regard for human life.

  2. Why was he homeless if he was so loved by so many? Could no one have taken him into their home? Love is action not words. This is all hypocrisy. Why didn't someone lend a helping hand?

  11. I would offer him monies and he would refuse it.He would prefer if I buy him something to eat. He had good advise to give to people even while he was on the streets. He was harmless. the person who did that to him will pay for it. RIP

    • He would only accept stuff from persons if he needed it. He was loved by his family. He had a home but for some reason beyond comprehension he chose to remain on the Streets. The person who took his life will surely pay.

  14. My family has been dealt and aweful blow, like many who have posted before Dhallah was a quiet individual, never appreciated one touching him especially what he valued dear whiles on the street but never did he have ill words or advice to give me about myself or his nephews, i was always fearful the street is mean, some people are so evil and my heart ached everyday for him, God knows and see all, vengence is mine says the Lord RIP Dhallah, we will miss you

  15. You are gone but not forgotten. You helped me when I was in need bringing things here for my kids. I will never forget you. I remember once when I met him by the market ,and tried to give you 100 dollars he tried to refuse it because he said it was too much. I insisted and remind him of all the good he did for me and today I can afford to help him . Thats when he took it. Even if he was a vagrant he had a good heart and that's what the almighty asked of us. Tears ,because I feel his pain but, he is in a better place. May his goodness be his light. RIP. My prayers are with your families.

  16. This is really sad man, to kill a man who appears by all means to hv lost everything but his life and now it was violently taken from him.... smh violence will never stop because our 'society' promotes violence.... The Land, The People, The Light...... We sell out the land to the slavery industry, We don't care about the people we cut wages and introduce VAT on them and when they don't seem frastrated enough a random change in school books should push them overboard... the light will only be seen by the few who hv direct links to the upper echelon of 'society' this place is being terrorized by the ones who promise prosperity and better days.... smh they've introduced a new labour code which no one really knows about, they don't do shows to educate u on your rights but will have a show to let you know how to pay VAT and implement VAT on essentials like medicine in a place without Universal Health Care, sigh... The media who are suppose to be in the interest of the people do not know their rights as the media and only focus on Crime sensationalise it and use it in the interest of political parties. In a society where you hv class you will always have crime cuz a ghetto boy cannot go to RJ Clarke and say I'm poor I need medicine for my mother and get it. This the cycle remains the poor stay poor and the rich get richer. So much to say bout our society that's so wrong but lastly I'll say that payday loans and those little gambling machines will widen the gap between the rich and the poor diminish the middle class and bring about more crime in our communities.

  17. Poor Dallah, he became a vagrant due to stress from not obtaining a promotion from his workplace at SLASPA. Poor him. He was very quiet and never troubled anyone.
    RIP

    • Constructive criticism makes one become better at their craft. Nothing wrong with pointing out genuine mistakes to make someone better.
